Call for Submissions: MHA Graduate/Undergraduate Paper Awards

By January 10, 2013

From our good friends at the MHA:

Dear Colleagues and Students:

I serve as chair of the Mormon History Association’s best undergraduate and graduate student papers awards committee. Each year we solicit nominations from students for these awards. Students may make one submission by sending me an electronic copy no later than February 15, 2013. The undergraduate award carries a prize of $300. The graduate award carries a prize of $400.

To be considered:
– the work must have been completed in 2012
– an electronic copy of the paper must be submitted to by the due date
– the submission must include a cover letter which provides the student’s name, school, status, major, contact information (phone and street address), and e-mail address

Additional information can be found at:

Winners in each category will be contacted prior to the MHA annual conference, June 6-9, 2013,  in Layton, Utah.

Please encourage your students to make submissions, and feel free to send this information to others who might be interested.
